ESPN suggests familiar move to cap Vikings offseason

Teams around the National Football League will soon be putting the final touches on their rosters ahead of the start of Training Camp, and a name that has become familiar to Minnesota Vikings fans this offseason has surfaced again.

Behind the great E$PN paywall, former Football Outsiders lead writer Aaron Schatz has suggested one last move for each of the 32 NFL teams to cap their offseasons. For the purple, he suggests a move that others have suggested previously, that being the signing of free agent wide receiver Hunter Renfrow to round out the receiving corps.

Brandon Powell had an average receiving DVOA on 44 targets in 2023, but his 324 receiving yards represented a career high after six years in the league. There are a lot of inexperienced players after him on the depth chart, plus veteran Trent Sherfield, who had just 11 catches in Buffalo last season. Minnesota could use a veteran slot receiver who knows how to get open underneath while Justin Jefferson and Jordan Addison are stretching defenses. Randall Cobb would be another possibility, although he turns 34 in August.

All things considered, if it came down to a choice between Renfrow and the fossilized husk of Randall Cobb, I’d go with Renfrow, too.

Again, this is not the first time that the suggestion of the Vikings signing Renfrow has been floated out there. Bill Barnwell, another Football Outsiders alum that writes for ESPN, suggested the same move following the 2024 NFL Draft. Personally, I still think it would be a solid addition to the roster. At this point, nobody that you’re signing in free agency is going to break the proverbial bank, and Renfrow has shown his ability as a slot receiver despite being largely forgotten by the Raiders over the past couple of years.

We still have a little more than a month before everyone reports to Eagan for camp. I’m sure the Vikings will do a few tweaks to the roster between now and then. Do you think that any of them will involve Hunter Renfrow?
